My expectations were reasonable for a county inn on the river in rural NC. Those expectations were absolutely blown away. The meals were fabulous, the service impeccable and presented with grace and aplomb. Upon espying the piano in the dining room, I thought maybe someone would plunk away indifferently as entertainment, but the players each night were extraordinary! Adding even...

The food is delicious. The scenery is breathtaking. The hosts are fascinating and helpful without being intrusive. The location is out-of-the-way, but not so far from exciting things to do. The inn and cottages are historic. Don't expect new and shiny (although beds, linens, bathrooms, etc, are quite nice), but enjoy the ambiance and history.

I had River House booked as my venue for my wedding and decided it just wasn't worth it! The worst part of my experience is that Gayle, the house manager would not answer my questions. She corresponded per email but diverted from any questions I had in my email and I thought I would have to show up at the...

What a treat! From the moment we arrived this Inn pampered us. They know all about great customer service. The owner Gail treated us as if she had known us forever! We were there for Valentine's Day. The dinner was a 5 course meal. The live pianist made the atmosphere even more special. Our accommodations were very comfortable. The fireplace...

My husband booked this inn for our 1st anniversary. It was simply lovely. Quite unexpected considering the surrounding area. I'm not sure that we took the recommended route (good ole GPS) because we traveled for a quite a distance on an almost-gravel road along the muddy riverbank with many a rundown trailer. Then all of sudden the landscape changed and...

From the moment you arrive, you are treated as though you are already a "regular" (and there are plenty of those, for good reason) and welcomed. When we arrived at the Chicken House, it more than exceeded expectations. The pictures do NOT do it justice, everything was absolutely stunning. The tub was larger than expected, and in a perfect location....

This in not our first visit to the inn but one of the best. Gayle introduced us to friends who live nearby with the same names as ours! Wonderful meal, great stories, perfect evening and quiet restful sleep. We haven't stayed at an inn with a better breakfast than River House's plate. Thank you Gayle.

This was our second trip here. Many of the rooms are old farm out building that have been converted into rooms for two. All of these buildings are within walking distance of the main house, where a delicious breakfast was served. There is also a new Wee Cabin, which is away from everything else, on top of the hill, which...

After 8 years of coming to the Riverhouse Gayle never quits surprising us with her Magic touch. The Sunday Salon was amazing with Emile playing the Piano!

OMG...The River House offers a different menu every day. Our dinner was FABULOUS! For an appetizer my husband had the Crab cake and I had the Butternut Squash soup which we shared with each other...(drool here). For the main course he had the Filet Mignon (rare) and I had the Grilled Salmon, both perfectly seasoned and cooked (excellent Chef). We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A full-service inn on the north fork of the New River, near West Jefferson and not far from Boone in the northwest corner of North Carolina. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we are far from the bustle of everyday life. There's a mile of riverfront for strolling, wading, tubing, canoeing and fishing. Brown trout and rainbows abound. Walking trails wind through 170 acres. Our uniquely decorated guestrooms are converted farm buildings and feature king-size beds, private bathrooms, jacuzzis, art, books and country antiques. ... more   less
